Pros Very good image quality. I own 2 units and each uses it's own channel, works like a charm. Have DVR, apple TV and Playstation3 all plugged on 1 unit, easy switching and 100% compatible. Remote is amazing too. Receiver attaches neatly behind Bravia
Cons Slow change between SD & HD (couple of seconds of delay). No 1080P support, although no one will notice (really!!!) the difference when using a Bravia with 120 or 240 hz .
Summary Just a real pleasure to have all cables and units neatly arranged away from the TV.
Pros It's simple to setup and works great. Nothing to do really, just plug it into the receiver with a good HDMI cable. Plug the receiver into the Sony TV. And it works. I am using this over a 60ft line of site connection.
Cons No 1080p, but I use it to watch TV...no 1080p transmission. And I have another HDTV and blue-ray play doing 1080p...not much difference.
Summary It would have cost me about $1000 for a Fiber HDMI cable, and another severl hundred to get it run, not to mention destroying some walls. This fixes that. And it works. CNET's article is tripe. No I don't work for sony. I actually own this thing.
Pros Not a review, a rant
Cons Not a review, a rant
Summary Ok, here's my beef with Sony,...THEY'RE TOO DAMN EXPENSIVE! And for what? technology that another brand will do the same if not better for less? No thanks Sony, that's $800 dollars you wont get from me.
